The newest addition to the CASSIN X-Team, the X-Light features the same sleek designsand quality forged components as the popular X-Dream, but with a shaft that makes it themost suitable axe for low-angle terrain typical of light and fast technical ascents. Threedifferent head configurations (pick & adze, pick & hammer, pick only) allow the tool tobe optimized for the objective. The single-curve shaft is optimized with the angle of thepick for solid performance on technical ice and for use as a cane. Carabiner holes at thehead and spike accommodate traditional leashes or lanyards. For steep ice climbing, it ispossible to change the standard X-Alp grip with the X-Dry grip and spike. The X-TriggerFast pommel (included) is adjustable without tools. The hammer and adze componentshave been shaped for a comfortable grip and the pick does not have teeth near the shaftto further increase comfort and help prevent wear and tear on gloves.
